We all know there’s a lot of jargon when it comes to technology, so we teamed up with a group of Year 7-10 students at Ormiston Junior College to explain what we do to keep a school’s internet connection safe and secure – in a way that everyone can understand.

When speaking with those of you who are tech-savvy, we talk about firewalls, online threats such as malware and phishing scams, and a lot of acronyms are used, such as DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) and DNS (Domain Name System) filtering.

That’s quite a lot of jargon.

This new video features our very own Greg Duff explaining what we mean by these terms in a fun and engaging way, using examples like Bullrush and foam balls to help describe how some of the technology works. All in less than three minutes.
